Posted On 03 Oct, 2018 0

The extremely popular partypoker LIVE MILLIONS tour is back again, this time with a series stop in the United Kingdom. After 8 hours of play on each day, Day 1a and 1b have ended at the Main Event, with one more starting flight to be played out at the Dusk Till Dawn Poker & Casino in Nottingham.

At the end of Day 1a, it was Turkish pro Serkan Ersoy who ended in the chip lead with 4.83 million chips. At the end of Day 1b, it was well-known player Florian Duta who ended with the chip lead and is also currently the combined overall chip leader, with 5.8 million in chips.

Now we know Duta for a couple of big tournament victories in the past. The Romanian player travels across the world for tournaments and his biggest wins came when he won the Wynn Summer Classic Championship in July, followed by taking down the record-breaking Goliath at the GUKPT (Grosvenor UK Poker Tour).

Quite a few other top pros are in the mix and you will see them back in action when they resume on Day 2 tomorrow, as Day 1c is still to be played. Among these pros are Eric Afriat, Bertrand Grospellier, Alex Foxen, Maria Lampropulos and others. Lampropulos is an upcoming pro who is best known for winning the PCA 2018 Main Event.
